Flora

I’ve had this picture for quite some time and, for some reason, have never entered it into the Salons. Flora had her first outing to Salon el Argentino and is now #42 of my required 50 pictures for EFIAP/silver. Flora

Still waiting for Adobe to catch up with the software for RAW files, but I couldn’t resist a few test shots in the meantime.

5th Greek Photographic Circuit

18 acceptances from the 5th Greek Photographic Circuit, with The Sorceress continuing its run of awards with a Diploma 3; three new images got their first acceptances – The Seventh Veil, Great Heron Taking Off and Male Bearded Tit; and four fairly recent images also did well – Study in Red, Trinity, Medusa and Regrets. Happy with that, as they say.

OK – You Can Have Your Dress Back!

I always enjoy sorting out entries for the SRGB Print Celebration BPE Exhibition, as they are the only purely print BPE Exhibition in the UK …. so it takes bit of careful planning. This year, I had six of my pictures accepted and, although I didn’t win any shiny things, it is a pleasure just to be part of the exhibition. OK – You Can have Your Dress Back! is a new picture and this was its first time out – glad the judges liked it.OK - You Can Have Your Dress Back.jpg

3rd Queensland International Digital Circuit

I had 39 acceptances in the 3rd Queensland International Digital Circuit, over 14 pictures, including two awards. Five of the photographs were first-time acceptances into FIAP, which means I now have all the qualifications to apply for my EFIAP/bronze at the end of the year. The new pictures (clockwise from top left) : Only Make Believe, Green Hairstreak, Fag Ash Lil, Lady of the Rock and Crossing the Finishing Line.
